You will meet your guide in the center of Split, one of the oldest cities in Croatia, with four departure times between 9am and 6pm to suit you. From here, you will embark on a 2-hour walking tour, exploring Split's 12th- and 13th-century Romanesque churches, medieval fortifications, 15th-century Gothic palaces and other palaces in Renaissance and Baroque style. Stroll around the Roman portion of the city, throughout which the ruins of Diocletian's Palace are scattered. The Cathedral of Saint Domnius, known locally as St Duje, is one of the best-preserved ancient Roman buildings standing today, built in the 5th century on the site where Diocletian, the last famous persecutor of the Christians, was interred in 311 AD. Other incredible sights include the statue of medieval Croatian bishop Gregory of Nin, the Golden Gate, and the tower-clock, which has kept time in Split since the 15th century. In the Medieval quarter, you can take in City Hall, the Fish Market -– a focal point of life in Split – and the beautiful promenade over Riva Harbor. Your guide will share facts and stories with you as you experience the vibrant culture of this historic city.
